Node.js is an open-source, event-driven system built with Google's V8 JavaScript Engine. It’s used by scalable applications that need real-time interaction between a web server and the worldwide web users and can tremendously improve the overall performance of any site that’s using it. Node.js is intended to process HTTP web requests and responses and ceaselessly delivers small amounts of information. For example, in case a new user fills out a signup form, as soon as any information is inserted in one of the boxes, it’s sent to the server even if the remaining boxes are not filled and the user has not clicked any button, so the information is processed a whole lot faster. In comparison, other systems wait for the entire form to be filled out and one large chunk of information is then submitted to the server. No matter how tiny the difference in the information processing time may be, circumstances change when the site expands and there are lots of persons using it simultaneously. Node.js can be used for booking websites, interactive web browser games or live chats, for example, and lots of companies, including eBay, Yahoo and LinkedIn, have already included it in their services.

Node.js in Website Hosting

All Linux website hosting that we’re offering come with Node.js and you’re able to add this avant-garde event-driven platform to your shared hosting account using the Add Services/Upgrades link in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will be able to choose the number of instances for this upgrade, in other words how many different platforms/websites will use Node.js at the same time, and you can add as many instances as you want. Hepsia will also allow you to select the precise path to your .js app and to select whether you’ll use a dedicated IP address or the server’s shared one. Accessing Node.js will be possible via a randomly generated port given by our cloud system. On top of that, you can stop or reboot any instance that you’ve created, modify the location of the .js app or check the running instances’ output with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel using an amazingly simple-to-use graphical interface.

Node.js in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With a semi-dedicated server from our company, you can use all the benefits that the Node.js event-driven platform is offering, since it’s available with all our packages and you’re able to add it to your semi-dedicated account with a couple of clicks from the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel – the semi-dedicated server administration tool that’s included with each semi-dedicated server. If you’d like to use Node.js for multiple Internet apps, you can select the number of instances that the platform will use when you’re adding this feature to your plan. After that, you will have to include the path to the .js file in your account for each instance. You can do this in the new section that will appear in the Hepsia Control Panel after you add the upgrade and during the process, you can also choose whether the access path to the given app will go through a dedicated IP – in case you have one, or through the physical server’s shared IP address. Each instance that you order can be restarted or stopped independently and you can see your applications’ output with just a couple of clicks.
